Hoping someone clarify a couple of points with the Europa-Spezial fares for me please.
1) If the booking includes an S-Bahn connection, must you take that exact S-Bahn service, or could you take an earlier one?
E.g. I'll be travelling from Frankfurt to Stuttgart with a 6 hour stopover at Sinsheim Museum/Arena. This involves a lengthy backtrack to Heidelberg via S-Bahn. If I finish at the museum early I would like to head back to Heidelberg on an earlier service and layover there rather than Sinsheim. Is that possible?
2) If a connection is missed through a late running service (and no fault of my own), do I still forfeit the fare? Some of the suggested connections are very tight!
I've ordered our Probe-Bahncard25s - now just waiting for the magic 90-odd day countdown to roll around to purchase the tickets.
